'THE CAUSA OF DISEASE.
A Physician of Some Note Dis
cusses the Subject.
Jtlan Cfre 'Victim of Els Own Stomnrti
What a "Writer on Alimentation Saya
About the Hot-Water Cure Health
tho Result of Good Digestion.
Who reads a medical book unless he bo a
student of medicine ? In fact, who can read
a medical book unless he be steeped in tho
technicalities of the profession? And though
ho possessed a key to high-sounding names,
would not the average- reader immedi
ately fancy himself the victim of all tho
symptoms dilated upon? Tbs boldest;
imagination runs riot when contsi-atmg
its own human carcass. But as wondors
nover cease, we have recently chanced upon
la book on hygiene so clear, so intelligent,
so founded on common sense as to be with
'in tho ken of every thinking man and
v;oman. This rara avis is entitled "Tho re
lation of Alimentation and Disease. Tho
, author. Dr. J. H. Salisbury, is best known
as having invented hot water as a boverago
and medicine. Dr. Salisbury's theory on
this subject, by ths way, finds a proper
placo in this book, and is worth transcrib
ing. Dr. Salisbury claims hat if human
beings will keep their stomachs in good
condition they can avoid all ills saving
these- brought on by accidents. Tho great
saving graco from his point of view and
from that of hiB disciples, who are multi
plying in all parts of thi3 country and in
England, is thissamo inexpensive hot
water. Americans aro the most dyspeptic
.people on the face of the earth, alamentablo
pact not due to climate, but to hot breads
iond griddle-cakes, pies, candies and
tho insane uso of ico water while eat
ing. Tho poor stomach is unequal
to tho task put upon it, and leaves much of
tho food undigested. Tho food ferments,
and from formentationB ariso all the hor
rors of dyspepsia. Such digestivo organs
Dr. Salisbury likens to an old vinegar bar
rel, and, liko this barrel, they rcquiro fro- ,
quent and thorough washing out beforo any
fermentable food can be taken in without '
disaster. This washing out should bo done
by drinking hot water at about 110 degrees
Fahrenheit, and should take place long
enough before each meal to allow the
water and washings to leave the stomach
before food is eat'en and to keep ahead of
the food as it passes downward. From ex-
perionco Dr. Salisbury finds that this hot- j
water washing should not bo nearer the
meal than one hour, and it is often better to
set back tho time two hours. The water
should be slowly sipped, so that the stomach I
may not be uncomfortably distended. The '
object of this drinking, argues Dr. Salis- j
bury, is "to wash out a dirty, yeasty,
slimy, sour stomach beforo eating and I
sleeping. It should bo taken on retirin g, not j
only for cleansing purposes, but to prevent
fermenting products from lying over night
next the diaphragm, hoart and lungs, par- !
tially paralyzing them and exciting cough
or disturbing tho breathing and circulation.
This washing should be kept up
persistently for months, and even years, j
beforo the digestive apparatus becomes so
thoroughly free of yeast, plants and tho
products developed by their growth as to al
low normal digestion, unaided by hot water.
Hot water is best taken in the
morning while in bed, or if up, it is well to
lie down on tho left side after taking it.
It is not alono in consumption that
this practice of drinking hot water is of use,
but in all diseases arising from defeclive
digestive processes and from the fcrmonta
tion df foods. Even comparatively healthy
persons find it of much benefit. It excites
iox.. puw,ut u v.i.o .
downward peristalsis, dilutes tho ropy sc-
x. I. . ..-"' '
cretions of the body, dissolves all abnormal
crystalline- substances that may be present
in tho blood, and everywhero promotes
elimination. It supplies a foundation for
tho thorough treatment of all chronic dis
eases by an inside bath, which refreshes
tho whole system. Cold water can not take
its placo. It was at first tried in connection
with food experiments, and found to cause
pain and colic. It does not excite the down
ward peristalsis, as does water at 110 to 150
degrees Fahrenheit, such as is liked in
drinking tea and coffee.
'The common and excessive uso of cold
water, both in drinking and bathinp, is a
jjreat mistake. It depresses the system and
wastes the animal heat in the effort to re- j
store the temperature of the economy which
is sensibly lowered by it,and the nerve forco
needed by the various organs, of which we
have none too much at any time, is
draughted off to repair our error. hen we
ice our water we intensify this error a hun
dredfold and sacrifice the well-being of all
internal organs for tho temporary cooling
of mouth and throat. If those surfaces
were in perfectly normal condition we
should not crave this cooling " Luke
warm water has also beeu tried, but was
found to excite upward peristalsis and to
make the users sick.''
Dr. Salisbury maintains that consumption
can be cured as readily on the Asiatic sea
board as in moro favored chines, and ho
founds this faith on the sourco of all his
medical knowledge, experiment ai.d cure.
".No one," he declares, "need hope to
handle consumption successfully by change
of climato or by medical remedies. It is a
disease arising from loug-continued un
healthy alimentation, and can only bo cured
by the removal of its cause, which is fer
menting food. The products of fermenta
tion, carbonic acid gas, alcohol and vinegar
yeast and vinegar are tho more important
factors in developing peculiar pathological
hymptoms of complaint which is generally
aiid erroneously believed to be incurable."
)r Salisbury's treatiso aims to prove
that health should bo man's normal con
dition; that if it is not man alone is to
blame. He is not willing to make our an
cestors responsible for our sms". Predispo
sition to disease does not necessitate dis
ease. It rests with ourselves whether w e
overcome or succumb to heredity. Alan is
the ictim of his own stomach. Treat that
organ with distinguished consideration and
health will wait upon g ood digestion.
An Infant Monstrosity. j
A Johnstown (Pa ) special to the Pitts- '
burgh Dispatch says: A Mr. and Airs.
Ross, of ilorrellville. arc tho parents of a !
son with a remarkable head. The child was '
born two years ago. At its birth it was an-
parently sound and healthy. Some time
after the child was born its head began to 1
grow out of all proportions to the rest of the
anatomy. Doctors were consulted, and
every thing that medical science suggested
was applied to stay tho unnatural development-
All efforts proved futile, however,
nnd tho growth of its head continues. It is
now thirty-six inches m circumference, or
almost as big as a half-bushel measure. The
body is about the right proportion iora
AwcMrear-old child. Tho little one can not
6tau"d, owing to the weight of its head;
neither can it speak, but it seems to under
stand what is said to it and to have all its
inenul faculties unimpaired. The cause ol
the unnatural growth of the child's head is
called by the doctors "hydrocephalus' or,
m plain English, it is the accumulation of
fluid in and about the brain. Medical
science has no euro for the malady, and
death Lj liable to occur to the sufferer at any
A otpI Invention For Steerlnc Steamc
nnd Avoiding Collisions.
A very novel, simple ana mgenius
device has been invented by Mr. W'm. H.
Burns, of St. Louis, which promises to
make a groat revolution in them'thods
and appliances by -which steam vessels of
the DroDtller uattera are tarJL !!-
Burns has built Tiis own working model,
and all steamboat men who have seen it
pronounce it an assurad success. As
steamships are now built, tho propeller
screw is fastened at the end of a rigid
shaft which extends from the engines back
through the stern of the ship, and when
the screw revolves the tendency is to move
tho vessel straight ahead or straight
backwarl, the direction of the ship's
movement being controlled by the rud
der. The latter acts very gradually in
changing the ship's course, so that one of
the large ocean steamers has to travel
nearly two miles in order to get itself
turned around, Mr. B.irus' invention dis
penses with the rudder, and puts in its
place a strong iron frame, swinging ju?t
like a rudder on an upright shaft, but
with the propeller screw mounted in it.
This frame can be swung around by the
man at the wheel, in like manner as a
rudder, but when it swings the screw
swings wi h It, and, of course, in so doing
changes the direction of its power, so that
it no longer pushes the ship directly
ahead. For instance, when it is desired
to make a quick, sharp turn in tho direc
tion the ship is moving, tho frame, like a
rudder, is swung around till it stands at
rifht angles with the vessel's keel.
The screw continues to revolve,
and, of course, its entire force is
applied to the work of pushing the
stern of the vessel s deways, without con
tributing anything to tho forward motion.
By this uothod, it can bo readily under
stood, a ship which a rudder would not
turn in a mile, can be turned in twice her
own length. The question will at once
suggest itself, how is the motion commu
nicated to the screw during its sudden
shifts of position, Simniy enough. The
upright shaft on which tho framo swings,
and which corresponds with a rudder
post, is revolved by the ship's engines,
and the motion is contributed to tho
screw by a bevelled gearing on this up
right shaft, around which the propeller
swings with perfect freedom. Mr. Burns
is not a capitalist, and the question as to
how to Introduce his invention into tho
shipyards ha3 not yet been determined.
'I propose." said ho to a reporter, "be
foro long to build an experimental vessel,
one hundred and twenty by thirty feet,
capable of carrying throe bun 'r d pas
sengers, and not to cost over $10,000. After
I have demonstrated the utility of my in
vention I shall have it patonted in all the
maritime nations of the world. I, I don't
succeed in porfocting and introducing it,
some ono else will, and that will be just
as welL Henceforwar J froa rivers s halj
compote successfully with toll railways,
and Northern and Southern products will
be cheaply and rapidly exchanged."

after a consultation as tho young people

but more for a lark than anything else
it was deamsd prudent to have them gj

At a recent meeting of the American
Ornithological Union Ernest E. Thompson,
of Canada, said that some birds, especially
sparrows, have ventriloquial powers. Birds,
when surprised in the act of singing, will
be silent for a moment, and then give forth
a faint song that seems to come from a dis
tance, though the singer bo not further
than ten feet away. Thrushes and robins,
the lecturer said, also have this power.

from 35 to 40; 15, per cent, from 30 to 35;
IS per cent, from 25 to 30; 52 per cent, from

Hollaxdaise Sauce. Put half a cup of

can use a bowl set in hot water if you wish.
Stir till creamy, then add the yelks of four
eggs, one by one, stirring all the time;
finally add the juice oi half a lemon, a
tablespoouful of fine vinegar, and last of
all a scant half-cup of boiling water. Cook
till tho sauce is quite thick; just beforo
serving add a tablespoonful of butter cut in
bits. Serve the sauce the moment it is fin
ished. Borax water will instantly remove all
soils and stains from tho hands, and heal
all scratches and chafes. To make it put
crude borax into a large bottle and fill with
water. When tho borax is dissolved add
more to the water until at last the water
can absorb no more, and a residuum
remains at the bottom of the bottle. To
tho water in which the hands aro to be
washed pour from this bottle enough to
make it very soft. It is very cleansing and
healthy. By its use the hands will be kept
in excellent condition.
Disturbing Influences Which Cause the
Soil sos to Act Abnormally.
Tho senses, in their normal action, never
deceive; but they are all liable to disturb- j
ing influences of various kinds, which cause j
them to act abnormally. They may bo j
pain fully exalted in sensibility,or the organs
of sense may be so blunted as to become
partially or wholly incapable of performing
their usual functions. They may even give
rise to sensations that are absolutely false.
The eye may "see" bright lights, beautiful
scenes,forms of familiar friends or monsters
of hideous shape see them as clearly as we
see any tiling and yet the apparent objects
be wholly unreal.
Disorders of hearing are tho most com
mon of all. Hinging, tinkling, rumbling,
roaring or beating as of an audible pulse
are heai d in various disturbed Mates of the
system. This is a frequent result of tho
misuse or overuse of drugs, as by the largo
doses of quinine taken in malaria. False
voices may be heard, so distinct that tho
person does not at once suspect their ob
jective unreality. These hallucinations may
connect with an unsound state of tho brain,
but they may be wholly independent of it.
The celebrated Dr. Macnish, when suffer
ing from fever, had hallucinations of sight
and hearing combined. He says: "I was
broad awake; my eye3 were closed, and yet
I saw with perfect distinctness the wholo
pcene going on in the theater Ducrow, per
forming his wonders of horsemanship, and
the assembled multitude, amongwhom I rec
ognized several intimate friends. When I
opened my eyes the whole scene vanished;
when I closed them it instantly returned.
But. though I could thus dissipate the spec
tacle, I found it impossible to get rid of the
accompanying music. This was the grar.d
march in the opera of Aladdin, which was
